HMB Acquires DC Based Syscom Services

COLUMBUS, Ohio (June 30, 2016) —The Capture division of HMB, a business technology services firm with offices in Columbus and Louisville, Kentucky, acquired Syscom Services of Silver Spring, Maryland. The acquisition will expand HMB’s enterprise content management customer roster and provide a DC area presence to better serve their increasing federal customer base.  The experienced Syscom staff will be incorporated into the HMB team and will provide an expanded capability to serve a rapidly increasing client list.

“Q1 of 2016 produced a 38% YoY organic growth and we felt to help accelerate and support this growth an acquisition was a prudent strategy,” stated John Paider, Capture division President. “Syscom has been an excellent competitor for years. Their reputation, experience and deep product and market knowledge made them a logical choice and their leadership added great value to our company.”

The core of HMB’s Capture division is enterprise content management (ECM). This team focuses on the integration of document management and data capture software with line of business applications. Through its partnerships, HMB offers a wide range of imaging and document management products and are ranked nationally as top partners for Fujitsu, Kodak, Kofax, Panasonic and OpenText. Currently, HMB has more than 1,000 ECM customers, including some of the world’s most recognized brands and public sector agencies at the federal, state and local levels. 

Syscom customers will continued to be served by many of the same staff as Alton Bell and Fitz-Roy Peart will be joining the HMB team. Sarah Schexnayder will be joining the HMB sales staff and has relocated to San Diego where she will be managing HMB’s west coast presence.  A primary focus of the acquisition will be the service of existing OpenText customers and expansion of an increased OpenText product offering.

“The synergies between engineering, support and market knowledge at HMB and Syscom will deliver expanded services and cost saving capabilities to our government and commercial clients in the mid-Atlantic and west coast,” says Jim Kelly, Founder and CEO. “This is an exciting path to growth for Syscom and HMB.”
